Israel has paid a heavy price for protecting the borders around Zion.
But the price is rather small, compared to what happened in Europe during the years 1933 to 1945.
Not only did Germany betray the Jewish people. When the Nazi-regime offered Jews a ticket out, non of the other European countries opened their borders for Jewish refugees.
The Jews were trapped in a world deceived by Satan. Even large parts of “Churches” were at best lukewarm in regards to the plans to terminate the Jewish people.
Today, plenty of Churches in Europe are lukewarm. There is hardly any teaching about Israel, the prophetic World and the coming judgment.
Let us honor the fallen Israeli’s who died in the ongoing war, where almost all nations of the face of the Earth do its best to destroy Israel.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Not you, I hope and pray. May Jesus the Messiah bless all who stand up for Israel and the Jewish people.
